My daughter, who is 10 years old, and I worked over a long weekend to make these costumes. We used mostly old stuff from around the house but had to buy quite a bit of cushion foam for the beast. The “beast” costume, which stands over 6 feet and has luminescent wiring to the skull, was inspired by Jim Henson’s work in The Dark Crystal, but the overall aesthetic we were looking for was more like Mad Max.

Ready for Halloween
